Outkast vs. Rosa Parks

Legendary civil rights figure Rosa Parks filed suit against Atlanta rap duo OutKast in 1999 for their hit song "Rosa Parks," off their third studio album, Aquemini. The case was initially thrown out but then sent to an appeals court. Ultimately, the case was settled in 2005 when the group members and record labels agreed to work with the Rosa and Raymond Parks Institute for Self Development to educate young people about Rosa Parks's role in American history. Outkast also voluntarily participated in the creation of a tribute CD to Parks.
